But in case of these 3 files there's no documentation in the source .c
files, so I guess it's quite correct these are 0 bytes long. Or maybe
not "correct", but "expected"...
I guess the real reason is somewhere here:
I've got a failure for these 5 files:
Each failure is in exactly the same place:
Those files include references to "nodes" which are supposed
to be defined in the empty "*.def" files. So the linkage is broken
before some nodes are empty.
I'm confused... Do the 5 files above "link" any external .def files or
maybe the other way around?
The empty *.def files are triggering the failures. Why the build
is generating them empty is the question.
I can attach output of configure and make info pdf if that makes any
sense, but there's nothing especially wrong there other than what I've
